Whether helping local Veterans, supporting seniors, providing youth sports programs, raising funds, volunteering to help those in need, or simply offering a place to gather for fun and celebration, Legionnaires provide essential services in their communities. Legions help Canadians to honour and remember those that sacrificed for our Country. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 322 Ajax Ontario was founded in 1942 by Veterans and for Veterans. Our Poppy Campaign, Remembrance Day ceremony, Youth Education, Vetbuild Program, Seniors activities and other community fundraising initiatives are some of the ways we help our community.

Alicia has a passion for helping others. She is a manager for a charity who helps individuals and children experiencing homelessness. In her free time,  she raises awareness about rare diseases, mental health and homelessness through fundraisers, her business and social media.  At sixteen her best friend Justice was murdered this turned her world upside down. Before finding a passion for philanthropy she would donate in his memory whenever a grocery clerk would ask her if she’d like to donate. A few years later she was diagnosed with chiari malformation, syringomyelia and a panic disorder. She chooses to rise above her trials and tribulations by being the change she wishes to see I’m the world!
